What is MST?

MST is an intensive family and community based intervention for children and young people aged 11-17, where young people are at risk of out of home placement in either care or custody due to their offending or having severe behaviour problems.
The key goals of MST are to break the cycle of anti-social behaviours by keeping young people safely at home, in school, and out of trouble.

“You have done the unimaginable. If it wasn’t for your guidance our family would no longer be a family. We thank you for all of you have done and will never forget you." (MST parent)

"I’ve stayed in college. I was very surprised about that. I know my mum was surprised at that but I stayed in college for 2 years. I’ve denitely got my head on my shoulders. I know what I want to do now for a fact so that’s really good." (Sammi, 18)
